Take Everything to the Lord

Last Monday (January 25th), my husband left me.

He is staying with his parents.

I did not live up to his expectations.

Can I be honest, I am so scared.    

I do not work. I do not have my own money. What am I supposed to do, now?

Cry and then take everything to the Lord.

I have been reading books for several months, now, about praying for your husband. Covering him from head to toe in prayers, another one is a 40 day praying Scriptures over your husband book and another one is a 40 day praying for your marriage challenge. As I said, I have been reading through these books and covering him and our marriage in prayers for several months.

I know, full well, that we are under attack. I have been focusing a lot of time in this area and the enemy is not happy.

Well, guess what?

I am going to keep on praying. 

I have had a lot of mornings that I could not sleep. I wake up to take my first dose of medication and just cannot go back to sleep. I have so many things going on in my mind. So.... I get up and go into my prayer closet to cry and pray.

On another note, I have decided that I am going to observe the season of Lent this year (and no, I am not Catholic). With my word of the year being "pray", I have felt lead to fast and now I feel lead to take part in Lent.

So Leigha, what did you give up for Lent?

Well, it wasn't something that I personally gave up.

My husband left.

So for the 40+/- days of Lent, I will be spending the time seeking God and His guidance for my life, and for my marriage. I will be focusing on praying over my marriage, and praying through 40+ blessings. And I will be trying really hard to remember that God is in control.

May this verse serve to be a reminder to you to keep on praying, no matter what:

Mark 11:24 NIV 

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


Father in heaven, I praise Your name. Please forgive me of the many ways that I fail You, every day and help me in my efforts to be able to forgive those who have hurt me. Thank You for always being with me, no matter what storms come against me. Father, I know that whatever I ask for in prayer, if I believe that I have received it, then it will be mine (Mark 11:24). I am claiming this promise, right now, over my life, over my family. Thank You. I ask all of this according to Your will. In Jesus' name, Amen.


I just wanted to mention that today, February 4th, is my blog's 3 year Blogiversary!

Pray and Give Thanks

You wake up.  You open your eyes.  You take a deep breath.  You move your body so that you are sitting on the side of the bed.  You see the ...
